Check pulse on wrist there is a blood-carrying vein in the thumb below the wrist, which can be easily diagnosed by feeling the pulsation of the vein.
*Pulse of South/Right hand of male and left hand pulse of female should be examined.
Pulse should not be examined during sleep or after breaking sleep, after oil massage, during or after eating, when hungry or very thirsty, after consumption of fire or sun, intercourse, travel, exercise or consumption of drugs.

Variation of check pulse on wrist:
(a) Pulse of a healthy person:

Knowing the signal of death through the pulse:
A pulse contaminated with air, burnt with bile and choked with coffee signals death. “If at first the pulse is rapid like that of a snake with wind-symptoms, and then the pitta-symptom-like wheezing is noticeable, and after that the phlegmatic goose-like motion is mild – then the disease is curable. But if there is confusion or disorder, it is impossible to cure the disease.
